Make Eating Fun was founded by husband and wife team, Gary and Amy Heyer. As parents ourselves, we found that at a certain age, our child became very particular about what she would and would not eat, and from our standpoint, for no real reason. As all parents do, we wanted the best for our child and that includes eating healthy foods to encourage both mental and physical growth. Rather than trying to hide broccoli under chicken nuggets or blend foods together, we also wanted an honest approach to showing our child the benefits of healthy food as well as trying new foods. So Make Eating Fun began to develop! Throughout the development of Make Eating Fun, we have found that the resistance to eating fruits and vegetables has diminished. Now, our daughter and her friends are requesting to use Make Eating Fun during snack time just for the fun of it! We would like to see the same results for you and your children.
All kids like to play. All kids like stories and almost all kids like both of those things more than eating healthy. So we decided to combine all three. After years of testing on our own children, neighbors’ and friends’ children, we developed the Make Eating Fun Interactive Nutritional Game. The concept is simple. We provide an imaginative personalized story with fun illustrations and a placemat to tie the story to the healthy snacks we want our children to eat. By engaging them in the story, most inhibitions about what they are eating are quickly broken down and healthy snacks not only become tolerable, but fun as well. On top of all that, we’ve thrown some life lessons into the stories so it’s more than just an eating aid, it’s a growing up aid. We’re proud to produce our Patent Pending product in the USA. We’re happy to bring it to the public and hope you and your children will enjoy the experience as much as we have!
